Cheyne Shades & Canvas was contracted by the All Abilities Disability & Mental Health Support Centre in Townsville earlier this year to replace an existing shade sail with a new waterproof PVC shade sail.

This was a repeat order for Cheyne Shades & Canvas as they had previously installed the colourful sun shade sails around the centre, which gave the institution’s management the assurance that they would receive the same high quality finish with their new PVC shade sail.

The management chose a dark grey PVC shade sail to offset the colourful exterior and sunshade sails. The large 15m x 9m PVC shade sail manufactured in-house by Cheyne Shades & Canvas, replaced the old beige sail, which covered the expansive deck area leading to the main entrance and auditorium.

Since only the sail was being replaced, Cheyne Shades & Canvas was able to utilise the existing posts and attachment points. The new PVC shade sail was installed using new Miami Stainless steel hardware including corner discs with tube 150mm, 16mm toggle bolts, 10mm bow shackles, and 12mm eye/eye turnbuckles.
